Internet of Intelligent Things

The IEEE World Forum on the Internet of Things (WFIoT2021) seeks submissions and proposals for original technical papers that address the Internet of Things (IoT), its theoretical and technological building blocks, the applications that drive the growth and evolution of IoT, operational considerations, experimentation, experiences from deployments, and the impacts of IoT on consumers, the public sector, and industrial verticals.

The theme for the World Forum is “The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on IoT”. In recognition of the rapid growth of IoT across the world and adoption across almost all verticals we encourage the submission of multi-disciplinary content.

Papers should address, but are not limited to, the following high-level topics:

  • Applications, Processes, and Services
  • Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Analytics
  • Basic and Enabling Technologies
  • Communication, Connectivity, and Networking
  • Computing – from Edge to Cloud
  • Cybersecurity, Security, and Privacy
  • Infrastructure, Devices, and Components
  • Information Processing from Multimedia and Heterogenous Sources 
  • Results from Experiments, Demonstrations and Trials, and Deployment Experiences
  • Social and Societal Impacts
  • Systems Engineering, Integration Methods,  and Operation Technologies
  • Theoretical foundations, Design methods, and Architectural Considerations


The following workshops and special session tracks are seeking papers:

Workshops Tracks:

Track 13.1: 7th Workshop on Blockchain based Secure Trust Environment Model for Internet of Things

Track 13.2: Mobile Edge Computing and Data Analytics for IoT
